Net question  

Black to play and capture the white+circle stones.
There are quite a number of patterns of net; those built on knight's move relations are sometimes missed in games by amateur dan players. This less usual example is taken from a Korean book for use in schools.

If B1 is played one line closer, White can do plenty, and if Black resists White's escape, the black+circle stones become weak.

Another, harder example is at Shape Problem 6/Net variation.
